Title: Super Talking Time Bros

uper Talking Time Bros is a joint effort that took place on Jeremy Parish's personal forums, Talking Time. This project took a handful of typical gamers and showed how they could outperform the vast majority of the indie game scene in terms of level design simply through a simple peer review process. I can say without hesistation that I enjoyed playing this project far more than either of the New Super Mario Bros games. The project was made in the now abandoned SMBX engine, with the whole community being allowed and encouraged to submit level files. A lot of levels had to be revised quite a bit and I believe a few levels were salvaged by other members of the community. The pack is not perfect -- it's slightly disconnected at times in style for obvious reasons, but it avoids virtually all he pitfalls of 'rom-hack' style level design. These levels were designed with the premise of SMB3 in mind -- fun, short, simple levels. The pack goes crazier than that for sure, but that goal kept things from getting out of hand.

I submitted two levels of my own (being impressed by the quality of the initial pack) to the expansion pack. The expansion pack is a little bit more wacky and akin to those hidden Starworld levels in Super Mario World. One of my submissions is a neat, but straight forward level and another is hidden... perhaps due to it's IWBTGish nature? Anyways, I'm hosting the whole shabang right now so please, download it and give it a go. It comes with SMBX so it should be all ready to play. I think many people will be impressed with the powers of peer review and revision.

pretty good so far, well only the first world but the engine feels flawless and the levels feel like well Mario. Oh well time to keep playing.

I was playing it a bit, and the engine is very good.
It is very well coded and the levels look nice and are simple.
I don't really get why Luigi has to grab coins from boxes, though.
I'm not very far in because I was failing in parts I shouldn't fail in.
However, I did enjoy what I played of the game so far.
By the way, Kayin, which levels did you make?

Anything that Kayin links must be good.
Downloading and will report back later.
EDIT: And judging by the level files, he made "I wanna be the ghosthouse" and "Volcanic Panic."

i just open the mushroom, push start game, and nothing happens, the process is just in the background but the game doesnt appear

I really like how you get to the secret room at the start of the game.
I laughed pretty hard when I figured out what I had to do.

A pretty cool approach to designing a game, the community simultaneously became the level designers and testers (:

Played through all of world one, except for the weird troll level that loops back on itself :~

Was a lot of fun, I really enjoyed it, although the only mario game I've played is mario 64 so some of the mechanics took me forever to work out, like the fact you have to hold down in order to go down slopes really fast, one of the levels required me to know that in order to continue :~

I have to say Kayin, your secret level is actually quite amazing. I love how everything you do almost always leads to a dick move and the fact that you play as the kid is fantastic xD
